PaloVia Review: FDA Approves At Home Wrinkle Removal Laser

by Edie Pastis


In December of 2010, Palomar Medical Technologies—a reputable cosmetic laser manufacturer—announced the launch of their groundbreaking at-home wrinkle removal device, the PaloVia™ Skin Renewing Laser. The PaloVia laser can reportedly treat fine lines and eye wrinkles, and provide overall skin rejuvenation results in the privacy and comfort of one’s own home! It’s also the first at-home laser of its kind to be cleared by the FDA.

Following in the footsteps of successful at-home hair removal devices like TRIA and Viss IPL, the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser will provide an enticing new at-home treatment option, for those who prefer to do their beautifying behind closed doors.

How Does the PaloVia Skin Renewing Laser Work?

According to a December 15, 2010 company press release, Palomar’s "patented fractional technology" has been "adapted and perfected for use at home" in the form of their new PaloVia at-home laser.

The PaloVia wrinkle removal laser "generates pulses of micro-fine laser light" that reportedly penetrate into the deeper skin layers, where lotions, creams and anti-aging serums can’t reach. As the laser treats the skin’s aging supportive tissues, the body’s natural healing response kicks in, shedding dead or damaged skin cells and triggering new collagen and elastin production. With continued daily use, PaloVia users should see a visible improvement in minor facial wrinkles, and in fine lines around the eye area in particular.

How Effective is the PaloVia At-Home Wrinkle Treatment?

In a clinical study of the PaloVia Skin Renewal Laser, a group of participants used the PaloVia laser daily for one month. Afterward, a panel of plastic surgeons and dermatologists reported a "noticeable reduction in wrinkles in 92% of participants". As individuals begin purchasing the PaloVia and using it themselves, new PaloVia reviews will provide us with more insight into it’s overall effectiveness.

PaloVia at-home laser results will likely vary slightly from patient to patient. Since the PaloVia uses mild pulses of laser light, patients with severe or deep-set facial wrinkles and crow’s feet may require a stronger, professional procedure like Fractional Laser Resurfacing, Laser Skin Tightening, or one of several dermal filler injections to dramatically reduce the appearance of their wrinkles.

For PaloVia patients to achieve their best overall wrinkle removal results, the PaloVia at-home laser should always be combined with a proper skin care regimen and healthy skin habits, like drinking lots of water and moisturizing frequently.

PaloVia Cost and Product Details

More specifics about the PaloVia device itself will be posted on the product website before year’s end. The PaloVia at-home laser should become available for purchase through QVC in late December. By January 2011, PaloVia Skin Renewing Lasers are set to be sold on QVC, through the PaloVia website, at Nordstrom’s, and through select physicians and retailers.

The suggested retail price for the PaloVia at-home skin laser is $499. Palomar is also promising a 60-day money back guarantee with purchase of the PaloVia. The cost of PaloVia at-home lasers may change according to supply and demand, or depending on where consumers purchase their PaloVia wrinkle removal system in 2011.

Will the PaloVia At-Home Skin Laser Work for Me?

With a current lack of PaloVia reviews, it’s difficult to say whether or not the PaloVia wrinkle removal laser will be the most effective cosmetic skin treatment for you. However, present PaloVia information suggests that this at-home laser skin system will work best for younger skin care consumers, or those who have only fine lines to treat. For more intensive anti-aging results, patients should consider other professional procedures for skin rejuvenation.

Getting feedback from a qualified skin care provider is also important when selecting the most appropriate skin rejuvenation treatment for you. Licensed skin care specialists will have the knowledge and the insight to suggest appropriate cosmetic procedures for you, and can help you achieve successful and personal anti-aging results.
